Cop cleared Queens massage parlor gun threat

A DISGRACED ex-rookie cop who was accused of holding a gun to a female massage parlor worker and refusing to pay got a conditional dismissal in Queens court on Monday.

Johnny Huang, 35, will not be sentenced on menacing and harassment charges in the July 27 afternoon incident at the parlor on Main Street in Flushing.

Huang — who maintains the story was fabricated by salon staff and that he did not draw a weapon — said he was there to “investigate human trafficking” on his own accord while off duty. He was assigned to the 115th Precinct in Queens.

“I was trying to get promoted to detective,” he said.

“Because of the military I was proactive and motivated. I try to do as much I can,” said Huang, who told of being a sergeant in the Army before becoming a cop.

His attorney, Robert Brown, said the result “vindicates my client,” adding it’s “clear that if he had done anything wrong” the DA would not have moved to dismiss and seal the case.

A spokeswoman for Queens District Attorney Richard Brown called it “an appropriate disposition” based on the evidence and his clean record.

Huang was hired in January 2013 and resigned in September, days before getting a termination letter from the city.

An Internal Affairs Bureau probe originally led to his arrest.
